A big change for Macarthur Joeys!

posted 11 Jun 2015, 04:02 by Joey Mob
We want Joeys to be fresh and engaging for your child, and during the cooler months, this can be difficult at times as we're mainly confined to hall-based activities due to the cold and dark of weekday nights. So, we're making a change. From now until the end of Term 3, Macarthur Joeys will meet fortnightly on weekends (generally Saturday afternoons). We will no longer meet on Thursday evenings. Reactions from parents have been almost universally very positive! We're looking forward to doing more activities outdoors, which is the classroom of choice of Scouting's founder, Lord Baden-Powell. 

Ahead of Term 4, we'll discuss whether we will resume weekly weeknight meetings or if we will continue with fortnightly weekend activities.

This month is a big one for us. This coming Saturday afternoon (13 June), we're walking from the Australian National Botanic Gardens to the summit of Black Mountain and back again! 

At the end of term, we're cycling around Lake Burley Griffin, and then catching a bus back to the hall for a really fun campfire and sleepover! This event will also be our commemoration of 25 years of Joey Scouts in Australia!

So, unless you're doing something more fun than that, why not join us?
